Born to Windsurf


"When you compete, winning is the only thing that matters."

That is Bjørn Dunkerbeck's motto. He has won a total of 42 windsurfing world championship titles, but can he still do more? Now, at the age of 51 he wants to give it another go and is aiming for a new world speed record.

In BORN TO WINDSURF, we follow him to Namibia, where he will attempt to break 100 km/h on a windsurfer at the Lüderitz Speed Challenge. Also competing at world-class level is his son Liam, who is following in his father's sporting footsteps.
